Athletics | Marcus Semien out Friday

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 17:04:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Friday, Oct. 2. INF Eric Sogard will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Semien ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) from your fantasy lineups. Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is 4-for-13 with seven RBIs over the past seven days and is 5-for-17 versus Iwakuma in his career with a pair of doubles. FantasyScore owners looking for a productive source of cap relief should consider him tonight.

Athletics | No Billy Butler against Angels

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 13:47:27 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. 2B Eric Sogard draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Butler ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) Wednesday, but it is worth noting he is finishing the season strong with a .316/.368/.551 slash line in September. FantasyScore players should view Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) as an ill-advised start Wednesday. He owns a career .314 slugging percentage and offers zero upside.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie starting at second base

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 11:20:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Brett Lawrie will bat seventh and play second base against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Saturday, Sept. 26. INF Eric Sogard, who played second base Friday, Sept. 25, will play shortstop Saturday, with SS Marcus Semien receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Although Lawrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is 3-for-5 against Hudson in his career, FantasyScore owners may want to think twice about using him. He is just 2-for-20 at the plate over the past seven days.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie resting Friday

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 17:14:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Friday, Sept. 25. Danny Valencia will bat cleanup and play third base, while Eric Sogard will bat second and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) should be removed from all starting lineups. Valencia ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is batting .391 with two home runs and six RBIs over the past seven days, while Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting .318 with one home run and three RBIs during the month of September.

Athletics | Marcus Semien sitting against Texas

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 15:09:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Semien ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is having a respectable sophomore season, but Semien shouldn't be confused as anything more than a low-end shortstop option in deep mixed leagues. Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .573 OPS through the past two seasons, and he is nothing more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Athletics | Danny Valencia out again

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:39:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16. 3B Brett Lawrie is starting at third base and batting sixth against Chicago White Sox SP Erik Johnson. 2B Eric Sogard draws another start at second base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Against Johnson, Lawrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) could certainly be a very strong value play on FantasyScore. Avoid the light-hitting Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) everywhere.

Athletics | No Brett Lawrie Tuesday

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 13:38:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 15. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at the keystone and is batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) shouldn't be a popular FantasyScore click, even against the struggling Samardzija. Sogard has zero home runs on the season and is only hitting .240 (82-for-342).

Athletics | Marcus Semien sitting vs. Texas

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 13:57:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 11. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Friday.

Fantasy Tip: It is just a typical day of rest for Semien ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) Friday, so be prepared to return him to your lineups Saturday, Sept. 12. Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) owns a .209/.269/.272 slash line in limited playing time since the All-Star break, and he is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief Friday.

Athletics | Marcus Semien not playing Sunday

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 12:20:49 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Sunday, Sept. 6. INF Eric Sogard will bat ninth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a somewhat favorable matchup this afternoon. He is batting .300 over the past week and is 5-for-15 versus Iwakuma in his career with two doubles.

Athletics | No Danny Valencia Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:05:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1. 3B Brett Lawrie is starting at third base and hitting second against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker. 2B Eric Sogard draws the start at the keystone and is batting leadoff, while 1B Mark Canha moves into the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard's ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) daily value is at its highest hitting leadoff, but his light-hitting ways still make him a weaker second base pick on FantasyScore. Lawrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Canha ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) are much more attractive as value picks against a pitcher that has allowed 1.5 home runs per nine innings this year.
